Order Security

To keep the transaction as secure as possible A.C. Audio Online use an SSL certificate and sends your payment direct to Secure Trading, our payment gateway, so we never store your credit card anywhere. This is the best and safest possible way to conduct business online.

When completing the checkout process you will see the standard padlock symbol in your browser, along with a unique security seal at the bottom right of the page.

We keep you secure by using the Verified by Visa and Mastercard Secure code system.

3D Secure Information

3D Secure is a new technical standard developed by Visa and MasterCard to further secure CNP (Cardholder Not Present) transactions over the Internet. MasterCard brand their system as 'MasterCard SecureCode' and Visa call theirs 'Verified by Visa'. It requires the cardholder to provide a personal password or pin number when paying for goods online with their credit card just as they would provide a pin on the high street. This ensures that the shopper is who they say they are when providing card details to an online shop. Cardholders are reassured that when they sign up their card is protected from fraudulent use on the internet.

Why am I being prompted for a code?

This is because A.C. Audio Online has incorporated the Verified by Visa and Mastercard SecureCode technology into our website payment systems. The page presented is actually from your Visa & MasterCard issuing bank, NOT A.C. Audio Online. This extra layer of security is now mandatory if your card issuer supports it. If your card is not part of the scheme you will not be asked for the code and your order will complete as normal.

What is Verified by Visa & Mastercard Securecode?

Verified by Visa & Mastercard Securecode (3D Secure) is a new service that enhances your existing Visa & Mastercard. A private code gives added protection against unauthorised use of your card when you shop at participating online merchants.

How does 3D Secure work?

Once you've registered and created your own private security code, you will be automatically prompted by your card issuer to type in your security code each time you make a purchase at participating online stores/retailers. Then your security code will be quickly confirmed by your card issuer to complete your purchase. Your security code will never be shared with the store/retailer and using it is as easy as entering your PIN at an ATM.

How will this affect your checkout process?

In a 3D Secure transaction, you must register for Verified by Visa (VbV) or MasterCard SecureCode (MSC) with your issuing bank if you have not already done so. When you place an order, you will be asked to register your card before continuing with the transaction.
The transaction process is as follows:

  1. You will complete your order and add products to your shopping cart as usual.
  2. At the checkout stage, if you select to pay by Visa, Visa Delta and Visa Debit, Maestro or MasterCard, then you will be redirected to your issuing bank where you will need to enter your password.
  3. The bank will verify the password and the transaction will continue as normal.

How does 3D Secure protect me?

Correctly entering your security code during a purchase at a participating online store/retailer, confirms that you are the authorised cardholder. If an incorrect security code is entered, the purchase will not be completed. Even if someone knows your credit or debit card number, the purchase cannot be completed without your security code at a participating store/retailer.

What are the system requirements for 3D Secure?

Verified by Visa & Mastercard Securecode works with most browsers. Please be aware that software which prevents pop-up windows may interfere with your use of 3D Secure. For full details of the scheme you can visit the Verified by Visa website or the Mastercard Securecode website.
